Primary secondary and tertiary amines may be prepared with high yields from aldehydes or ketones and ammonia or amines using cobalt and rhodium carbonyls as homogeneous hydrogenation catalysts. Reaction conditions are similar to those used in hydroformylation so aldehydes may be prepared in situ from olefins, carbon monoxide and hydrogen.
